I picked this up today.
It's got a nice raw sound, good set list
etc. Atheist is one of the few tech death bands
I dig. Check this out.

I got to see them a couple years ago and they kicked ass. It was great getting to talk to the band members as well. Their recent tour lineup was horrible though.

atheist had their moments...some songs of their 1st and 2nd LP were great, but for a complete LP-listen, it gets boring. could imagine the same effact seeing them live where the sound and all details are gone in a mess.

cynic is overrated.

if i want technical DM i masturbate on sentenced's 2nd, death's 5th and atrocity's (ger) 2nd and demilich. thats enough for me. errh, where's that fine realm of chaos LP...should clean up? *search*

And the new album is a disorganized pile of junk. I could get into "Focus" (what an obvious name!) but the new one is just disorganized, jamming technically for the sake of sounding technical. All for a band whose claim to fame is whipping out 1970s jazz fusion and putting metal riffs in it. Zzzz.

I saw them open for Candlemass in 1991 and they were great. I can't really get into their records, though.

I love the first two Atheist CDs. Dude, those are killer.

But Cynic? I'm "meh" at best on "Focus," and the new one is only good for blowing migrant prostitutes on meth.

The new Cynic sounds like Tool.

It is interesting. There is an intensity in the set
that's not there in the studio
records. I'm not into tech death that much
but Atheist and Nocturnus rule.
How can you beat a concept album about
a time machine that takes a guy
to "Burn The Manger" Evil or Very Mad

They were horrid at Maryland Death fest though I don't think their albums are that bad (I'm not a fan though). The singer looked like a nu-metal douchebag.

Thank you.
Exactly what I was referring to when I mentioned they're boring live. They were just background music while hanging with the wolves of D666.

Saw Atheist at LA Murderfest in 2008 [I think]. were lame then, too.

As I said before, vocalist is a Dethmetal Brett Michaels - that bandana will never come off! Laughing
